Iconic Jesus

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation, for in Him all things are created, in heaven and on earth, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things have been created through him or for him. Col. 15-16

An icon is a religious work of art sometimes with symbolic and even miraculous associations. In computing, an icon is a pictogram displayed on a computer screen in order to help navigate the computer system. So much about the Trinity as God is shrouded in mystery. We don’t understand how there can be one God yet three distinct Persons but we can wrap our heads around an in-the-flesh historic human life and a real-time demonstration of His love. Jesus became icon for humanity to navigate the spiritual world. Jesus is primary and pivotal in contemplating our very existence.

Lord, I exist through You and for You.
